St Jude's Early Learning Centre
"Growth in Truth and Love"
Located in Holder, St Jude’s Early Learning Centre opened its doors in March of 2014. A brand new building was built on the western side of St Jude’s Primary School which has two dedicated classrooms and a separate play area especially designed for the preschool children to enjoy. St Jude’s Early Learning Centre provides preschool education for the families within the Catholic Parish of St Jude’s and St John Vianney’s, Weston Creek and the Molonglo region.
St Jude’s Early Learning Centre offers a quality preschool education for four-year-olds, catering for children in the year prior to primary school. The curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework which recognises the importance of communication and language (including literacy and numeracy), and social and emotional development. Programs include play experiences, intentional teaching and learning opportunities based on the interests of the children. The local environment and community members are often integrated into the programs to deepen the children’s knowledge and experiences.
